PC does not recognize that i have backed up files

I have hundreds of backed up files on my D drive, nearly 100gigs of them over the course of a year or so. (which is just a partition of my hd)

I have lost everything on my computer somehow, and when i attempt to restore these files , the computer states "There are no backups on this computer."

Any ideas?

What did you use to back up your files?
Did you ever attempt to restore the files prior to this successfully?

Im not sure of the program used. It is my grandfathers computer, but taking in his intelligence level, i dont see him using anything other than the default windows 7 program.

SHORTY-PC>Backup Set -DATE->Backedup Files -DATE- XXXXX

The X's represent sequential numbers starting from 18051 and jumping around randomly.

It also created a CATALOG folder that contains an a file labeled "GlobalCatalog" that opens up Winows 7 Restore Files program, but then the program reports there are no files to backup.

Yet there seems to be hundreds of zip'd up files in the single BackupSet folder.
